When a serial lady-killer is found with shears sticking out of his chest and an ice pick in his hand, Kathy Mallory and her NYPD Special Crimes partner Detective Sgt. Riker are called in to investigate. One of the occupants of Winter House, the scene of the crime, is 70-year-old Nedda Winter, who immediately confesses to the killing, claiming it was self-defence. Murder solved, case closed. It's even poetic justice. But Winter House is the site of a massacre that took place 50 years previously and doesn't give up its dead so easily. Mallory and Riker will have to reopen the original investigation in order to try and stop the murderer from finishing what they started.

NYPD Detective Mallory and her partner are called to Winter House to investigate a simple case of an intruder killed by someone he was trying to rob. But nothing is as it seems--the intruder wasn't stabbed by the pair of scissors sticking out of his chest, but by an ice pick. And Winter House isn't just any house; the mansion on Central Park was the scene of multiple unsolved murders years ago--ice pick murders. A street kid adopted by a cop, Mallory has become a ruthless and brilliant detective in her own right. She talks her boss into giving her and her partner three days to solve both murders. Alyssa Bresnahan skillfully brings individual characters to life. Her impeccable pacing and narrative skills involve the listener completely in this complex mystery.
